Wayfair sells home goods principally to U.S. consumers through five websites.
"Although Wayfair's customer acquisition has been successful, the Company controls neither product manufacturing nor logistics and distribution, and is therefore less defensible than a vertically-integrated e-commerce platform," Triton stated.

Competitors include: One Kings Lane, Hayneedle, Overstock.com, Amazon.
Lead underwriters for the deal are Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Citigroup and Allen & Co.. Investors include Great Hill Partners, HarbourVest Partners, Battery Ventures, Spark Capital and T. Rowe Price.
The company's road show is expected to start this month. Shares are expected to list on the NYSE under the symbol "W."
